Women in lead­er­ship: Making it to the top

NZ Business - - INBOX -

Many women as­pire to be lead­ers but find their self-doubt pre­vents them from ful­fill­ing their po­ten­tial. In turn, many or­gan­i­sa­tions fo­cus on de­vel­op­ing lead­ers from within but over­look the tal­ents dis­played by the women they em­ploy, thereby miss­ing a vi­tal op­por­tu­nity to ex­pand their lead­er­ship ca­pac­ity. Ruther­ford Busi­ness In­sti­tute is hold­ing a one-day work­shop in March 2016 where Dr Ma­ree Roche will help women iden­tify and over­come the bar­ri­ers that pre­vent them from be­com­ing ef­fec­tive lead­ers and as­sist them with plan­ning their route to the top.

Ruther­ford’s CEO Wendy Oliver says that Roche has a wide range of ex­pe­ri­ence in lead­er­ship fa­cil­i­ta­tion, coach­ing and con­sult­ing projects and skills, and cur­rently lec­tures at Waikato Univer­sity. She says work­shop par­tic­i­pants will gain an un­der­stand­ing of the com­plex is­sues fac­ing pro­fes­sional lead­ers, in­crease their own self-aware­ness, clar­ify their own goals and de­velop the psy­cho­log­i­cal as­sets re­quired to sus­tain their role as a leader.

The work­shop is de­signed for women who hold ex­ec­u­tive po­si­tions in the cor­po­rate or not-for-profit sec­tors or who are en­trepreneurs and/or busi­ness own­ers along with those who want to con­trib­ute more ef­fec­tively to the suc­cess of their or­gan­i­sa­tion and iden­tify ways of cap­tur­ing bet­ter op­por­tu­ni­ties. It is also for women who are keen to make their way to the top and those re­turn­ing to the work­force.
